Conducting strike action at Midland

Issue No. 2146

Around 100 train conductors at the London Midland company struck on Sunday and Monday of this week against management’s attempts to force them to work on Sundays.

This was the second set of action by RMT union members. It hit depots at Watford, Bletchley and Northampton.

Stewart Cameron, the branch secretary of Watford RMT, told Socialist Worker, “The strike has been solid and we’ve been out picketing in Watford. RMT general secretary Bob Crow came along to show his support.

“We’ve had a good response from the public. We are planning another strike for Tuesday of next week.”
